Toilet Water Coffee Controversy erupts at a Starbucks in Hong Kong

Starbucks coffee shops are everywhere. It takes though just one shop to get into trouble to spell bad business for all. A report from Hong Kong says now that the Starbucks location in central Hong Kong gets its water from a nearby toilet. Several times a day a Starbucks employee pushes a cart into the toilet and uses a special Starbucks only faucet to fill it with water. The faucet is in close proximity to a urinal which is outraging customers. 

Starbucks says that the water is filtered before use. This does not matter much though as looking at the photos is making your cup coffee taste bad. Are you going to Starbucks today?

The report appeared on Apple Daily. Kotaku has a good translation and also published the photos of how this Star Bucks location gets its water for making coffee.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
